Demon's Play - David McBride

 

Some of the 13 earth bound tribes of demons apparently either want to start a war, or want to work out an agreement so they aren't demonized (pun sort of intended  :  )  )so much by by the paranormal population, or something.

So, they summon one of their Dukes from the demon realm to make a deal with the supernatural Council.

 

A lot of information seems to be left out, or glossed over.  I want to know more!

 

Frank was assigned to protect the Duke, without realizing he's also the one he's trying to fight.  A weird convoluted situation that was set up by the head of the council in an attempt to get the earth bound tribes to cut the shit and to prevent any more from coming through the portals.

 

A bit disjointed on this front obviously, but overall a fun read.  A scene with demonic leeches eating his car made me laugh.  

I picked it up in 2012, so apparently the author isn't doing a sequel.  Damn.

Demon Road, Derek Landy
Demon Road - Derek Landy

The best novel I've read by Landy! It also has the best reason to get rid of the parents I've ever come across in teen fantasy. I suspect its inspiration resides heavily in the TV show, Supernatural, and the level of explicit horror was startling. Trade-mark Landy quiping and comic-relief idiot are all present and correct, though toned down compared to early Skulduggery Pleasant.

Reading progress update: I've read 160 out of 512 pages.
Demon Road - Derek Landy

Clearly Derek Landy as much because of the contrasts to Skulduggery Pleasant as the similarities.

Nancy Drew, Girl Detective #1: The Demon of River Heights by Sho Murase and Stefan Petrucha
Nancy Drew #1: The Demon of River Heights (Nancy Drew Graphic Novels: Girl Detective) - Sho Murase,Stefan Petrucha

 

My library had a bunch of Nancy Drew graphic novels and since I had already planned on reading a ND mystery for this square I decided to make it easier on myself and read the GN. 

 

I wished I had just read one of Carolyn Keene's originals instead.

 

The artwork was okay, although at times it was too dark to make out the characters or scenery. The storyline was less Nancy Drew (from what I remember reading ND in my younger years) and more Scooby-Doo gang. Also Nancy in this is a complete scatterbrain - how could she be a better detective than the police chief when she couldn't remember to put gas in her car SEVERAL times? None of the female characters come across with any good traits (George is an oversexed bimbo, Bess is nosy bitch, and Nancy's nemesis is a gold digging slut - OF COURSE). 

 

A crappy attempt at updating Nancy Drew for a new generation.
